RATED G by the MTRCB means it’s for whole
family to watch! Well, not exactly actually. I watched this today together with my mom and it was just a dull cinematic experience. Seriously! I suggest you guys watch it with friends or at least, the better, your EX! LOL!
Today is the first day in the big screen of It Takes A Man and A Woman, the last and final installation in the John Lloyd-Sarah loveteam which started to dominate the silver screen years ago. From You Changed My Life to A Very Special Love and now this. If you ever wonder why the title is such then let me be a little spoiler for you, yes beybeh, the word is MATURITY. The loveteam has really grown from being a sweet chic-flick tandem to a now more serious and deeper character roles. It has picked-up over time its story and its actors’ attack on their characters. Understanding how each and everyone performed, I give my claps and my standing ovation to the one and only and still the unbeatable blockbuster hitmaker, John Lloyd Cruz! P***ng ina ang galing! Need I say more?
The supporting casts in the movie also did a wonderful job, lalo na si Joross Gamboa! Joross is worth mentioning in here for his outstanding performance and his delivery of his role as the joker and alaskador in the film. He truly has grown to be a wonderful actor who harnessed his skills over the years. If you get to watch the movie already, you will surely know what I mean about Joross here. Sarah G on the other hand also did well, but not as much as she did in the previous installations of the sequel. Sa movie na ‘to, parang dinala lang ni John Lloyd ang kuwento, but don’t worry coz it’s really not that of a bad thing coz in the end, all elements were balanced off and it produced not just a wonderful movie, but a masterpiece and sure enough to be another blockbuster hit this season!
It Takes A Man and A Woman tackled more the stresses of an unfinished business and unforgiving heart. It also touched a little bit of destiny, fate, patience, understanding, and second chances in love. John Lloyd is always best in these kind of roles, if you will remember One More Chance, this is also the same Lloydie you will see in the movie only not being Popoy this time, but Miguel Montenegro. The story is quite different this time, though it may be in general something that has been existing and persisting since who knows when; it still managed to push through an image and feel specific only to this film and storyline. For this, I commend the brilliance of Dir. Cathy Garcia-Molina for delivering such work set in a very timely manner. I loved the set-up. I loved the lines. I loved the sequences. It drove me crazy in fact as the movie is just a complete roller coaster of emotions! It brought me to tears both sadness and joy, made me laugh, and even made me kilig to the bones like asdfghjk!!!
#ItTakesAManAndAWoman is just wonderful. It’s just brilliant! I still cannot get over it in fact; if only my mother weren’t around, I could’ve freely let out my emotions. I wanted to cry at some scenes, but it will be awkward. Haha! So to everyone who plans on watching it, I suggest you go with your special someone or friends for the matter. 🙂
I’m giving this film a 9.5/10 score. As tweeted (while I was inside the cinema) this is the next best Filipino movie (love related) I’ve ever watched after One More Chance! Ang galing! Ang gandang pelikula nito! You guys should never miss your chance of watching this! I’m even watching it again if someone will ask me! KUDOS! Galing!
find out niyo rin if this is Sarah’s first on-screen kissing scene, I’m not telling you, but you really have to find out yourself. Alam niyo naman siguro ang kuwento why Sarah never gets kissed on TV. haha! 🙂
See you around guys! Til my next post peeps!
